Canada’s largest and longest running charity polo event is back and better than ever in its 40th year. Founded in 1979, Polo for Heart has been raising funds and awareness for heart and stroke related charities since its inception. With tons of different events like international polo matches, a silent auction, a children’s village, a Champagne divot stomp and much more, the Polo for Heart is equal parts entertaining and important.
We sent our resident rider Melissa Grelo out of the studios and into the stables at Fox Den Farms Equestrian Center, home of the Toronto Polo Club, where she learned firsthand if she has what it takes to play some polo.
